My salad dressing days

Reader, I married (and then blogged about) him

Mr Chick and I celebrate our wedding anniversary today.

For this reason, I am suspending silliness and sarcasm, and instead bringing you the Shakespeare sonnet a friend read out at our wedding:

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark*,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

— William Shakespeare

* where I am the star (natch) and Mr Chick the wandering bark

I love you, Mr Chick.

Do you mean it is over 7(?) years since Mr Chick was so sick after his stag night that he couldn’t consume his juice and eggs the next morning at the cafe?! Congrats! Your friend and his best man.
